Positive Words and Actions

Have you ever wondered...
How common is disrespectful behavior toward racial and religious minorities? How about immigrants and refugees? What kinds of things happen that may not be widely known? How are individuals affected and how do they cope? What is the impact on families, communities, and the nation? What resources are available to those targeted and to all of us to make it right and to uphold human dignity?

Hear experiences and perspectives from:
 Bernard Clayton, advocate for racial justice, nonviolence, and public safety in Iowa
 Kate Kedley, scholar focusing on Central America with close ties to US immigrants
 Mohamed Khalil, MSL, Kirkwood Community College adjunct faculty member and leader in the Sudanese community
 Dr. Ibrahim Shehata, President, Islamic Foundation of Iowa (IFI), leader among the Bosnian and Arab communities in Waterloo
 Dale Todd, Vice President of Development, Hatch Development Group; Cedar Rapids Commissioner of Parks 1998-2002
 Stacey Walker, Linn County Supervisor for District 2
 Valerie Smith, former Iowa Organizer for the Arab American Institute and current Facilitator of Cedar Rapids Solidarity in Motion (moderator for our panel discussion)
